Sang Yoon doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving—at least, not the way most of us do. Instead, he observes what he calls "Sangsgiving," the most lavish, over-the-top and adamantly nontraditional Thanksgiving this country has ever seen. "I have two rules: Don't eat turkey, and drink nothing but great bottles of Champagne all night," he says.
The communal spirit of Thanksgiving lives strong at Sangsgiving. "The gathering part is fun," Yoon says. "If I can't get a minimum of eight people, there's no point in doing it—you can't do Sangsgiving with just three dudes sitting around." In that sense, Sangsgiving is less a rejection of Thanksgiving than a true celebration.
